With the losses of defensemen Henrik Tallinder and Toni Lydman – the Buffalo Sabres have very little experience on the blue line anymore.

The average age of the Sabres defense? 25.  And that is inflated by Buffalo Sabres captain Craig Rivet, who weighs in at 35.  Only two other three other players top 30, Jordan Leopold (30), Steve Montador (30), and Joe Dipenta (31).

If the Sabres make no other moves between now and training camp- they have six NHL defensemen coupled with six guys in Portland.
